The new 5-foot-tall Claybon hanging lantern, which suspends from an adjustable 40-inch chain, draws inspiration from an 1860s antique. While the original lantern, priced at about $105,000, is also available for sale, the reinterpretation is lighter and more durable thanks to its transparent panels of high-grade Perspex. The model shown (about $56,000) is rendered in brass, but the company also offers custom finishes and colors. +44.20.7736.8490, www.charlesedwards.com
